10 tweets that prove Newcastle should start this Rangers reject ahead of Welshman

Newcastle fans have praised young defender Kevin Mbabu for his performance against Watford in the FA Cup today.

The Swiss left-back made his Premier League debut earlier this season in a spirited draw against Chelsea, but has since struggled for fitness.

As Toon boss Steve McClaren tinkers with the system, the 20-year old had been operating as a left-wing back in today’s game at Vicarage Road.

Fans have even criticised the former England manager for substituting the player off, believing he was one of the best players on the field.

French winger Florian Thauvin was brought on as the away side chased an equaliser, much to the dismay of the Geordie faithful on social media.

Paul Dummett is usually preferred in a starting role on the left-hand side of defence, but Mbabu’s shift today has seen fans calling for his inclusion ahead of the Welsh international.

Hard to believe he couldn’t get a game at Rangers, eh?
